Matthew was brought to Kasisi as an infant after his mother died. He is very independent. He likes taking care of the younger children, going for walks, drawing and reading books, all activities that help him develop his imagination. He has a lot of compassion for others – even though he is healthy, he sympathizes with the sick children. He even waits in line for medications with them – while he doesn’t need any himself, he likes to keep his friends company.
We hope that Christopher’s death, which was an unexpected tragic event for the whole Kasisi, will kick off a chain reaction of good. Because of this, we started the Christopher Sakala Fund. With this fund, we support children being treated on the oncological ward at the hospital in Lusaka.
